Legal expenses

Appealing to the Pension Appeal Board is free of charge. If the applicant uses a representative or an assistant, fees may accrue. A claim for compensation for the legal expenses must be presented before the Pension Appeal Board issues its decision. An institution on the opposing side may be obligated to compensate the legal expenses generated in the case to the applicant if the demands presented in the case by the applicant are accepted. Legal expenses are compensated based on the Administrative Judicial Procedure Act (808/2019)
